(Reuters) - British health minister Matt Hancock, a former economist at the Bank of England, is expected to launch a leadership bid on Saturday morning, Daily Mail’s Deputy Political Editor said in a tweet.

Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday she would resign after failing to deliver Brexit, setting up a contest that will install a new British prime minister who could pursue a cleaner break with the European Union.
